Imperas Delivers ARM Cortex-A7 MPCore High-Performance Processor Model with Integrated Software Development Environment

Company’s Range of ARM Cortex Models, Including Cortex-A15 with TrustZone® and Virtualization, will be Demonstrated at the Multicore Developers Conference in May 2013

OXFORD, United Kingdom, April 9th, 2013 - Imperas has today released its latest software model, the ARM Cortex-A7 MPCore, to complement its existing range of ARM Cortex models.

The model uses Imperas high performance code morphing technology to allow software engineers to execute development code at hundreds of million of instructions per second. Incorporated within the model is Imperas range of advanced development tools for efficient software analysis and debug.

“The ARM Cortex processors include capabilities, such as TrustZone and Virtualization, that must be modeled accurately to ensure absolutely reliable software execution during the verification process,” highlighted Simon Davidmann, CEO of Imperas. “Our library is unusual in that it includes fully featured models, which operate at the highest available performance, and include a powerful software development environment.”

Imperas, a member of the ARM Connected Community®, includes in its library a full range of ARM processor models, including the ARM7, ARM9, ARM10, ARM11 and Cortex-A, Cortex-R, and Cortex-M families. The models include support for both the 32 and 16-bit instruction sets, as well as the MMU, MPU, TCM, VFP, NEON, TrustZone, Virtualization and Large Physical Address Extension (LPAE) capabilities, where appropriate for the specific processor.

The models, together with example platforms, are available from the Open Virtual Platforms (OVP™) website, www.OVPworld.org/ARM. The models can be utilized within OVP based components, or integrated into SystemC/TLM-2.0 based virtual platforms using the native TLM-2.0 interface included with each processor model.
